Kelly Oubre returned from his Game 4 suspension on Wednesday to score 13 points in 20 minutes of action, as the Wizards fell behind three games to two against the Celtics.
Oubre struggled with foul trouble in this one, wracking up four in his brief playing time. A lot of that had to do with a 21-year-old player being asked to stay in front of Isaiah Thomas, but Oubre wasn’t the x-factor the Wizards were hoping for in Game 5. He added just three boards and one triple to his scoring output, and the Wizards will need to see Oubre contribute more across the board if they hope to extend this series on Friday.
